The 3DMark application version number applies to the software as a whole. It changes often as we add new features and make updates to ensure compatibility with the latest devices. We recommend using the latest version of 3DMark.

A benchmark version number—for example, Sling Shot v2.2—is specific to a test. Benchmark version numbers change rarely and only when absolutely necessary. 

You can check the current application and benchmark version numbers from the Settings screen.
